Two days after announcing he had been medically cleared to resume football activities, wide receiver Sidney Rice has found a familiar home in the NFL.
The 6-foot-4, 202-pound pass catcher agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday afternoon, a deal struck nearly seven weeks after the club released Rice in a salary-cap influenced move prior to the start of NFL free agency.
Following Rice's Feb. 28 release, head coach Pete Carroll said the team might "have a chance" to bring back the wideout who led the club in catches (50) and receiving yards (748) two seasons ago.
"Aaayyyyooo 12s.. SEA you in a few.. IM COMIN' HOME!" Rice captioned in a photo of himself donning Seahawks blue and green on his Instagram account.
He'll rejoin a Seahawks receiving corps that currently features nine others at the position -
Rice originally signed in Seattle as a free agent on July 29, 2011 after four seasons with the Vikings in Minnesota. The 27-year-old has played in 33 games for the Seahawks since, hauling in 97 catches for 1,463 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
